When lighting is integrated into the landscape, it reveals the beauty of the night’s landscape as the light of day fades. The hidden beauty of the landscape is accented by the use of well-sited lighting. The use of up-lighting creates the height and down-lighting defines the space. When combined with other lighting techniques, the picture created is dramatic and inspiring. While lighting may be an additional cost, the benefits are an increase in the use of outdoor living space, safety, and the visual extension of the landscape at night.
